Second Circuit Sheers Cosmetology Student’s Claims in Intern-or-Employee Case

Jackson Lewis P.C. • February 11, 2019
Concluding that a student at a for-profit cosmetology academy was the “primary beneficiary” of the hours he spent training at the academy’s salon, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the district’s court’s determination that the student was an intern, and not an not employee entitled to minimum wage or overtime under the FLSA or the New York Labor Law. Velarde v. GW GJ, Inc., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 3536 (2d Cir. Feb. 5, 2019). The Second Circuit has jurisdiction over New York, Connecticut and Vermont.
